200th Cupcake Inspirations Blog Hop and Challenge



I am so excited about our 200th celebration!  

Hopefully you have arrived here from Christine 
If not, be sure to go to Cupcake Inspirations to start from the beginning.  

You can participate in the challenge and celebration in 2 ways.
1) To have an opportunity to win the grand prize package (over $200 value), you must make a card using a past cupcake as inspiration and link to the Cupcake Inspirations blog.
2) The second is to participate in our blog hop and leave a comment on each blog. The Sweeties all have a prize on their blogs from one of our fabulous sponsors -

I am sponsored by SKdigis!

I  get to work with Sonia, a very talented artist and owner of SKdigis.
Her images are so cute and whimsical.
All SKdigis are 300 dpi line art for a beautiful crisp print.
Each SKdigis measure approximately 6” on the bigger side.
SKdigis are saved in 2 formats (.jpg - .png)
 Sonia also offers  a new sketch challenge every Friday called-Sketchy Friday
and she has a monthly FREE image for you to download and play with!
Please visit the SKdigis Shop to browse all her fabulous images.

Now for some blog candy:  A $6 Gift Voucher from SKdigis!

Just leave me a message.  I'll randomly pick a winner on March 10 and contact him/her.  It's NOT necessary to be a follower of my blog, but I invite you to follow me if you are inspired by any of my work.
 

Here's my photo inspiration from a past cupcake challenge:
I used SKdigis--Birdhouse with a bird on top


Challenges:  


Sonia just released some adorable new SKdigis this week, so I had to create another card to showcase just how cute these images are!  This one is a cute fairy!
Here's the past Cupcake Inspiration:



If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire lineup at Cupcake Inspirations.
